This unusual variety adds extra drama to the ordinary form, featuring brightly coloured flowers set against contrasting dark purple foliage. From July to September, Hydrangea serrata ‘Daredevil’ bears masses of flat, lace-cap flowers with vivid, rosy-pink florets. The toothed leaves emerge bronze-green, turning purple, almost black, as they mature, providing a dramatic background to the bright flowers. As autumn arrives, the dark foliage takes on fiery red shades. Hydrangea serrata ‘Daredevil’ makes an excellent foundation shrub for a mixed border or woodland setting in light shade, providing a long season of interest with its combination of flowers and foliage colour. Please note that flower colour may alter according to soil pH. Height: 80cm (31in). Spread: 120cm (47in).

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Leave the faded hydrangea flower heads in place until the new buds swell in spring to protect the delicate buds from frost damage. In early spring, dead head the old flowers, cutting them back to a pair of healthy buds just below.
In late winter or early spring remove one or two of the oldest stems to the base. This will encourage the development of new, replacement shoots and keep the shrub productive.
After pruning hydrangeas, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. Caution: Contact with hydrangea foliage may irritate the skin and eyes and all parts are harmful if eaten.
